Stam1na (FIN)


The name of this band must be a self-fulfilling prophecy, for Stam1na shows no signs of slowing down. This band is a tireless machine, and what a better place for their sweaty shenanigans than Ilosaarirock Festival!

It's hard to believe that Stam1na was founded 22 years ago! Ever since their debut album in 2005, this thrash and prog metal elements combining band has wowed the critics and their fans with their unparalleled musicianship and they have only raised the bar ever since. Singing in Finnish is no hindrance, either, as last year Stam1na toured successfully central Europe and rocked the boat at the 70000 Tons of Metal cruise at the Caribbean.

In their music Stam1na tackles themes from relationships to climate change, all filtered through their peculiar transistor, with a splash of humour. Their latest album Elokuutio is a new milestone in the multilateral lyrics and compositions of Stam1na's music. This summer Stam1na will turn the moshpit at Ilosaarirock into a devilish dynamo.
